Joseph Gartell @ Air Gallery

Showing alongside me at Air is my brother Joseph:

Joseph Gartell presents his debut show “Menagerie”; an exploration of line and form in the natural world. Joseph is an artist living in London and specialising in figurative work. Joseph likes to closely observe and then rebuild his subject, reinterpreting it with the aim of arriving at something exciting, fresh and new.

His prices for original pen and ink drawings on a vast scale - the largest being his iconic 'Bison' rendered entirely in blue/black biro - start in the region of £6000. Each piece takes months of planning and thousands of hours to apply each layer of penwork. Such is the intensity of line and form that representatives from BIC pens have been to view the exibition twice already this week.
